    Missouri Castle Doctrine Used

    A couple weeks ago in the St. Louis area, a man in his mid sixties was with his wife and grand child.
    He came to a highway exit that has multiple lanes exiting.
    There were two people on Harley's, a man and his wife.
    According to local news, the bikes and the car exited at the same time. The female rider said the car cut her off, upon which time the husband stopped, and walked to the car and argued with the car driver.
    The car driver claims that there was confusion on the bikers part about which lane each should have been in.
    The argument escalated into a spitting at each other situation, when the biker husband punched the car driver in the face.
    The car driver shot the biker in the chest.
    The car driver, upon seeing the biker coming back toward his car, grabbed his .380 pistol
    from his glove box anticipating this problem in advance.

    The biker survived, and no charges were filed.

    The car driver was afraid, and left the scene to take his wife and grand baby home.
    He then turned himself in to the police.

    Road rage sucks, both parties could have and should have avoided the confrontation. Shut up and let it pass, not worth the trouble both put themselves into.

    Road rage almost ended in a bad way. Ignore the ragers and if they insist to follow you head to the nearest P.S. or other high traffic area and call 911. I say they both got lucky in this situation. Let the lesson be learned.

    Situation like that, only the lawyers win, regardless of who's left standing or who prevails in court.

    Q: What do call a defendant found not guilty?
    A: A poor sad sack who owes everything he'll ever have to a lawyer.

    When I ride my motorcycle, I watch the cars, and try to anticipate where they are going, so I can stay out of their way. If they come together, I'm going to lose regardless of who is right.

    Speaking of Castle Doctrine... Judging by your avatar and handle, I'm glad you don't live in Raul Rodriguez's old neighborhood!

    All joking aside. This thing sounded entirely avoidable. Just apologize and drive away... In the grand scheme it matters not if you are right or wrong.
